Amy Phelan, shareholder at tonneson + co, was included in a Thrive Global interview as part of their series, “Meet the Female Leaders of Finance.”
In this in-depth interview, Amy shares career insights, lessons learned, and thoughts about the continued advancement of women in the finance profession.
“I am proud to be able to work on the advancement of work-life balance as a core element of our firm’s culture at tonneson + co. I came into the accounting profession back in the early 90s when there was no voice mail, no email and we wore suits to work each and every day! Public accounting was known for long hours, and wearing jeans to work or having flexible schedules was unheard of. Twenty plus years later, I am working for the same firm and have been lucky enough to play an influential role as we develop and implement our firm’s vision for the future. That vision is one of a culture that allows people to have a successful career as well maintain wellness and balance in our personal lives.”
